25 Days of Holiday Gifts: Brain Booster

Day 11: Because some days, a triple-latte just isn’t cutting it.

Brain Dust may not sound like an appropriate stocking stuffer, but don’t let your thoughts jump to horror movies and mad scientists just yet. This herbal tonic, created in small batches by Moon Juice in Los Angeles, includes a handful of natural ingredients like maca and gingko to help stimulate mental function and clarity. A teaspoon or two can be sprinkled into just about any liquid (and Gwyneth Paltrow counts herself among the label’s loyal fans, in case you really want to impress the proverbial yoga pants off your giftee). $55.
